How to parse a string with special format into objects or variables?

New Member

Hi there,

I have trying to use spath to try to extract fields inside a string. Currently, the string has this format..



stringField=["fieldOne": "fieldValue", "fieldTwo": "fieldValue", "fieldThree": "fieldValue"]



So, my string inside has some kinda of array with key value pairs. I would to be able to extract those fields and values in a way that I can use their information for my queries. 

I would like to be able to get the value of fieldOne by just calling the fieldOne variable/object to get it's value to perform my desire task/stats and so on.. 

I was trying something like... but no luck!



search... | spath input=stringField 
search... | eval newVariable=spath(_raw,'stringField')
search... | spath
search... | spath path=stringField output=newField



The first option of just using input with the spath command only gave me back the first field inside my string. And it was listed as {} field.

I would really appreciate the help!
